    New Icelandic Data on Imminent Risk of Subsequent Fractures

    Date: May 05, 2016

    Medscape Medical News released an article last week highlighting the risk of sustaining a second major osteoporotic fracture after a first is more than three times higher in the first year after the initial event, new results from an Icelandic study indicate. And 10 years after the first fracture, the risk of a second remains twice as high as that in a non-fracture population. The new research by Harvey et al was presented at last month’s IOF meeting in Malaga, Spain. The article quotes ASBMR’s Co-Chair for the National Bone Health Alliance, Robert Adler, M.D. Read the entire article here.
